Argentinian Tango has become a universal phenomenom over the last hundred years, with its mix of rhythm and sensuality. This film looks at this extraordinary dance through the story of two of its greatest protagonists: Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years, until a painful separation tore them apart. In German Kral’s Buena Vista style study, the virtuosos reunite to tell their story to young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.
‘A documentary that both celebrates and challenges the passions of dance.’ Abbey Bender, Village Voice
